floating islands

This month’s food news, trends, Ching-He Huang’s oyster sauce chicken, and what’s on the BBC The dessert that goes by many names; œufs à la neige (‘eggs in snow’), and île flottante (‘floating island’) in French, or sciumette in Italian. Whatever the name, we’re seeing this old-school pud making a comeback, and what’s not to love when it’s that good? Poached meringues sit on vanilla custard, topped with caramel. We’ve spotted it at London’s Brasserie Zédel (brasseriezedel.com) and Bellamy’s (bellamysrestaurant.co.uk) in its most traditional format, or try Black Axe Mangal’s rainbow île flottante with popping candy (blackaxemangal.com). Whip up more meringue and try making Monica Galetti’s white chocolate baked Alaska on p126.

have you tried?

What is it? Also known as gum arabic or E414, you might have seen acacia gum listed in the ingredients of chewing gum, fruit pastilles and some yogurts and soft drinks. It’s often dismissed as an unnatural ingredient used only in commercial food and drink, but it’s 100% natural, extracted from African acacia trees, and can be used in home cooking. What does it do? Just as you’d expect from a product with the word ‘gum’ in it, it’s a stabiliser used to thicken foods. It can also improve the texture and enhance the flavour of food. So, what can I do with it? Acacia gum is useful for bakers as it can help cakes to rise, act as a confectionary glue when sticking sugar decorations together and is a key component in edible glitter. It can improve…

cold brew tea

You’ve heard of cold brew coffee, but the latest trend in drinks is cold brew tea – in other other words, tea made by steeping teabags (or loose tea leaves) in cold, rather than hot, water, usually for a longer period of time. Tea giants Tetley and Twinings launched cold tea infusion products last summer, and more have followed this year, including Lipton and Teapigs. We love the new range from Teapigs. Just chuck a bag in your water bottle before you go to work or let one steep in a glass on your desk (between 7 mins and 8 hrs) et voilà – a naturally flavoured, low-cal drink with no added sugar or sickly syrups! Our favourite is the lychee and rose flavour. teapigs.co.uk…
